Armed soldiers have invaded Daily Trust head offices in Abuja and Lagos, hours after taking over the newspaper’s regional office in Maiduguri, Borno state and arrested the regional editor, Uthman Abubakar and a reporter, Ibrahim Sawab.
GovernanceNews gathered that everyone in the building was asked to move to the ground floor while they move computers.
The military personnel retrieved the phones of all staff member in the office.
They also loaded all computers at the head office into some of their vans before taking off.
Dozens of soldiers are presently stationed within and outside the building, preventing entry and exit.
All efforts to get the Military authorities’ response to these invasions have proved abortive as the Nigerian Army spokesman, Brigadier General Sani Usman ignored calls made to him by our reporter.
